This is a little summary about my last trip across the city of Frankfurt.

My first pit stop led me to one of my favorite ressources for furniture and other lifestyle accessoires.

Frick is a retail shop in the heart of the city selling from Vitra’s and USM Haller’s classics to such beautiful gems like these…

… “Bloom” by Raeder are wonderful aluminium tools for your gardening…

Lux11
Situated in Berlin’s pulsating and hip central district of Mitte, amidst all the creative and chic fashion shops, galleries, trendy media agencies and a myriad of culinary locations, the 72-room “Lux 11″ has opened in July. The hotel adresses a trendy audience from media to musicians.

The ground floor, with its up-to-the-minute video installations of the surrounding neighbourhood, is a vibrant place for guests and locals to hang out and meet up. The in-house beauty salon & spa allows for various degrees of styling before heading out into the fray.

From September on a roomy bustling hip restaurant and chill-out bar with Italian-Asian fusion cuisine will provide guests on the hop with fresh, fast, and healthy dishes. And true to Mitte’s pronounced café culture, the Lux 11 will also offer its own cosy café/lounge for whiling away the afternoon.

River Kasematten LogoMy friends in Hamburg took me to a new location to be in our hometown.

River Kasematten is a historical place in Hamburgs harbour facing the famous Blohm + Voss docks on the other side of the Elbe. After the second World War River Kasematten became a well known place for jazz freaks.

After its renovation and recent re-opening River Kasematten is the place to relax, lounge, eat and party in the city. Interiour designer Frank Theuerkauf was responsible to create the elegant atmosphere - a well-tempered mixture of materials and discreet colours - of that new restaurant and lounge.

Hotel Domine Bilbao
I visited Bilbao in 1998 and at these days the Guggenheim museum was the newest must-see in town. It was in February and Bilbao was all about carnival. We explored the ancient part of the city with its bars, restaurants, hip-locations and beautiful shops. Especially during the night this part of the town turned into a big partying melting pot. Crazy young people everywhere and from every part of the world were dancing in the streets and partying all night long.

To sum it up…this city was burning - uploaded with Basque spirit and really vital. Now I - we all - seem to have a new incitement to visit Bilbao again.

The “Grand Hotel Domine Bilbao” is a highlight for your next trip.

Home
My oh my… I told you that traveling between the coasts basically means always missing out on the fun stuff because you are on the wrong side at the right time… Well this week was a particular case of bad luck.

Firstly I missed Valerie Garral spinning the discs at Glass on Wednesday - she does that every two weeks and it is always fabulous… So if you are tired of waiting in line at Marquee, because you don’t seem to be the high roller you’d want to be, don’t worry, go next door, enjoy a fun night without the drag… But this Wednesday was also the opening night for Home.

Boulderado no more…

BoulderThe hotel Boulderado - I have been told - is the place to stay in Boulder. Charm, location, style… People!!! What have you been taking??? Unless you subscribe to Laura Ashley and the style that comes with that, the place is nothing for you. I had to turn out the lights when I walked into the room…

But there is hope! I did not experience it myself yet - with the exception of the bar and the free wireless - but since a few month’s there is the St Julien Hotel & Spa: nature meets nurture and simplicity meets style.
